    OK. The Warriors beat the Heat. Albeit the Heat game was a blowout.

  • I love TV!

    Is AEN only airing Duck Dynasty? How can americans watch so many reruns…..?

  • edward

    yeah MDLNY made the list!

  • Yoyo

    The heat beat the bulls by 40. Cant believe people still watched after halftime.

    @tati

    The Golden St. Warriors are very fun to watch. I would love to see a Heat/Warriors NBA finals. Stephon Curry is becoming a superstar.

  • jr

    American Dad is starting to be up near family guy and tbbt with reruns.

  • Joel

    The Real World was good last night, wish it had more viewers.

    OUCH! Mythbusters down BIG TIME on its 2nd week of returning to Wednesday nights! I guess DISC just doesn’t want to compete with AEN’s DUCK DYNASTY anymore…

    PSYCH!!

  • Ram510

    Surprised Psych is up this week especially with a lower amount of viewers. Didn’t it used to get around 3 million

  • Torrid

    I can’t believe SPN reruns at 9 or 10 in the morning still get 7 to 800,000 viewers and a 0.3. Amazing!
